Special education

Special school – Special education or special needs education is the education of children who differ socially, mentally, or physically from the average to such an extent that they require modifications of usual school practices. SE serves children with emotional, behavioral, or cognitive impairments or with intellectuel, hearing, vision, speech, or learning disabilities; gifted children with advanced academic abilities; and children with orthopedic or neurological impairments. 

  • Patterns of instructional adaptation

The goals of special education are similar to the educational goals for ordinary children; only the techniques for attaining them are different. An effort is made, for example, to teach all children with special needs to read. Children who have learning and mental disabilities require prolonged periods of intensive and more-individualized instruction. For them, the learning process might include techniques to maintain interest, more active participation, and much more repetition of similar material in varied forms. Children with learning disabilities and those with speech defects require highly specialized techniques, usually on an individual basis. For children with social and emotional problems, special therapeutic and clinical services may be provided. Psychotherapy and behaviour therapy by clinical psychologists, social workers, and psychiatrists are generally a part of the educational program. 

 

Special school

Special school for special child

A special need is a challenge that interferes with one’s learning. It requires support that goes beyond the norm. There are different types of special needs and challenges. For instance, there are learning, developmental, behavioural, and physical challenges. Moreover, these challenges can differ in their severity, or in how much they impair learning.

Special needs schools are different from regular schools in that they cater to students with education challenges. They are designed, staffed, and have the resources to provide the right support for children with unique needs. These schools aim to level the playing field. They offer students targeted support to allow them to meet age-appropriate educational goals. We offer customized programming to meet each student’s unique combination of needs. This includes not just learning, but also social and emotional needs.
